Green Beret’s free-fall death spotlights concerns, sparks working group | Army Times

Master Sgt. Nathan Goodman had been on over 200 freefall jumps. However, during his last jump he became destabilized. According to Army Times, Goodman was being trained on a way to launch the chute that is commonly used by civilian parachuters. However, this time it led to his death when he was unable to cut off the main parachute and open his reserve. The method is being judged and critiqued by the Army. He reported shoulder pain before jumping, but investigators are not sure if this played a part in his death.
